Fifth Sunday in Lent

Today’s theme suggests times when it is appropriate to swap out the old for the new – habitual ways of thinking, methods of understanding, and scope for perceiving. Imagine these texts in dialogue with each other and enjoy!

Isaiah 43:16-21

A new commandment
Forget stories of rescue
Look to the new thing!

Once there was much joy
So we will well remember
And inspire new faith.

Philippians 3:4b-14

I count as old trash
All my trophies of success
but striving Christwards

John 12:1-8

Expensive fragrance
Poured with love over his feet
A scandal for some.
